MarSave Unhas International Symposium 2018 Hasanuddin University


The seas which sustain life on our blue planet are experiencing increasingly complex and severe pressures. To achieve sustainable development goals in a marine context, we need to address threats and strengthen resilience at multiple scales, from species to ecosystems, from individuals to communities and nations, from the molecular level to socio-ecological systems. Science has a key role to play, informing policy and management, exploring solutions and catalyzing change. MarSave 2018 will bring together people from a wide range of scientific disciplines and origins to share their experience and results to date and to form collaborations to address crucial issues in the context of the MarSave 2018 theme: “Strengthening Marine Resilience for Sustainable Development Goals”.

The keynote and invited speakers reflect the broad spectrum of the MarSave 2018 theme. The parallel sessions will focus on specific research topics or areas of interest. In addition, there will be a special session entitled “Developing Collaborative International Research Proposals” to facilitate the development of future collaboration between MarSave participants both within Indonesia and internationally.


In view of the increasingly dynamic and interdisciplinary nature of science in marine and resilience-related fields, MarSave will welcome high quality submissions on a wide range of topics from any related single or multi-disciplinary field. Such topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Sustainable and resilient fisheries and aquaculture
  • Understanding and coping with climate change and ocean acidification
  • Marine Biodiversity, Biology and Ecology
  • Marine Conservation
  • Marine Biotechnology and Genomics
  • Post-harvest processing, food safety and food security
  • Resilient socio-ecological systems
  • Sustainable Marine Tourism
  • Technology for coastal and small-island resilience
